What’s in a Name?

Our journey began in 1966 as Northwest Bible Chapel. When we moved into our current building a few years later, we became Arlington Countryside Chapel – a fitting name for a church way out in the country in Arlington Heights! We eventually became Arlington Countryside Church and now Pathway Church of Arlington Heights. 

Why a name change?

We want to give people a better idea of who we are.  We’re all on a path going somewhere, and we invite you to join us on the path that leads to a new life in Jesus. It’s a journey, and we want to make that journey with you!

What else has changed?

Our church looks, feels, and sounds different than it did in the 1960s. But, our mission has never changed. We’re here to journey together with you in experiencing new life in Jesus Christ.
